Burger King India will use proceeds from the primary market offering to open company-owned restaurants and for general corporate purposes. It already has 261 restaurants across 57 cities, including Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh and Ludhiana. The restaurant chain plans to open another 700 restaurants approximately by December 31, 2026; these would include company outlets and sub-franchised entities.
Kotak Mahindra Capital Company, CLSA India, Edelweiss Financial Services and JM Financial are the book running lead managers of the public issue, and Link Intime India is the registrar to the issue.
Burger King’s is the 13th initial public offer so far this year.
“While the COVID-19 crisis have impacted short term growth, we believe the company remains well placed for long term growth, given its strong brand position, diverse food offerings, well established supply chain, aggressive expansion plans, cost management efforts and benefit from the gradual recovery in the QSR industry post COVID. As such, we recommend subscribe to this IPO,” brokerage firm Anand Rathi recently said in a research report.
